So, 1st dry day and I managed to fit the diffused LED’s into the door handle recesses

Camera makes them brighter than they are in the flesh

I might increase the LED resistance to dim them a bit more.

Tried to make the wiring as OEM as possible, even though it’s behind the door card! Didn’t have the correct connectors though Image

Image

Image

Hard wired my new dash camera in too, motion sensor now operational.

And went for a bit of fun on the trails, what a difference it makes being able to get all my kit in and bike too!

Colour coded eyebrows installed as well rear spoiler reattached, albeit properly this time Image

Both sides of my rear spoiler were being held in place by gravity, eek!

Image

And what happens when you paint the underneath of the spoiler prior to attaching, not clever!!!

Finished off the passenger side door handle illumination and quietened down the squeaky window with some silicone spray

Image

And sorted out my van insurance to cover all my mods...

Colour coded modified bumpers
Multimedia HU
Seats
All the interior mods : seats, MFSW, LED’s, carpeting, etc...
Coil overs and axle flip
Alloy wheels

Low excess, mirrored NCB, fully comp, £275, result!
